|A Department of Space PSA - Change|
Philosophy has it's place among all the sciences, including the astro-sciences but not including killer robot building science. Why would you need a philosophy for that? They do one thing; kill stuff. Actually, I guess that's more of a mission than a philosophy. That's different right? I'm going to level with you, I was a business major; I took philosophy once as an elective but I really didn't pay attention...

|Beach Walk #504 - Your Brain, Your Politics|
I recently read about a brain research study by Dr. David Amodio at New York University. He looked at the differences in brain behavior by people who identified themselves as either liberal or conservative. He found that liberals brain respond more flexibly to new information. This seems similar to me to the differences described by Myers Briggs among people who rely on data from the past to inform their decisions (SJ) compared to others who prefer to imagine, What if? (NF)Good fodder for those ...

Transparency in communication and relationships and business and politics is one of those things that is marching forward very quickly in the 21st century. Most people I know are big fans of it in general. I am too, yet I still realize that privacy has its place. And that in general I want other people to be more transparent while I reserve a desire to want to be private. (Witness the deliberations regarding MI and FL Democratic delegates this past weekend.) That sense of double-standard I find ...
